With voters supposedly looking for bipartisan problem-solvers, this line of attack against Rep. Donna Rowland, R-Murfreesboro, seems like a winner to Pith. This week, she refused to sign a House resolution
honoring retiring Congressman Bart Gordon, and Rutherford County Democratic Party chair Jonathon Fagan probably couldn't write his press release fast enough:
"Rowland has already gained a reputation as an incompetent and ineffectual representative, and this petty partisanship adds immaturity to that reputation," Fagan said. He added that Rowland has herself sponsored many resolutions in the past, even for her current boyfriend Ronnie Barrett, and questions why Rowland would not simply add her name to a resolution honoring a retiring Congressman of 26 years from our own county.
More from Fagan: "Bart Gordon has worked for Rutherford County and the Sixth District for over a quarter century. Whether or not we all agree with his every decision, he deserves to be recognized for his service just as Republicans Bill Frist and Fred Thompson were recognized by all Democrats for their service."
Rowland apparently hates Michael Jackson too.
